As hard as people think it is, Swordplay is not hard, applying Swordplay against another swordsman Is.
I can't decide which is more hilarious - the Internet Martial Artists (TM) or the people who think owning a sword makes them a bad ass.

Bow down before our new furry overlords!
Katana is good only if the zombies are led by Quentin Tarantino.
Broadsword is too heavy to use repeatedly--you'll be tired after your fifth swing. Not only that, but what about carrying it? You'll be walking cross country, sometimes running. You don't want a heavy-ass sword weighing you down.

Nothing makes you hate MMOs more than having played MMOs.
Annnnnd this is why people shouldn't own weapons.
Friend comes around. Friend gets drunk. Friend stabs friend with the sword.

Just for once do the right thing and don't buy the actual weapon. Go buy something useful.
In movies, actors(stunt crew) are often instructed to make the swords look a lot heavier than they actually are, in order to make the battles look more heroic.
A sharp one. Or at least a pointy one.
Also, considering it is a zombie apocalypse, do you really think a close quarter weapon is good enough when there are hundreds of zombies surrounding you? It would be like a Zealot being surrounded by Zerglings.... Either way you put it, not good.
I would go with an MP5 slung over one shoulder, Squall's Gunblade holstered on your right hip, and Sephiroph's super long Katana on your left hip (oh and extra magazines for your MP5 and extra bullets for your Gunblade)
This way you can engage them from a distance but still have some method of hack and slash should they get too close.
One that reminds you of how much believing in the idea of a zombie apocalypse makes you sound uneducated and dumb imho.
